Overview

I before e (except after c) teaches kids smart ways to remember all the things they learn about in school. The book is full of techniques and presents cool ways to remember a variety of facts on a variety of subjects.

Just like adults, kids need easy ways to recall stuff-especially now, when they don't even have to remember a phone number because their cell phones remember it for them. And just like the bestselling i before e (except after c) for adults, this book is jammed with easy-to-use tricks for remembering lots of stuff-especially stuff they need to know for school. Through entertaining (and often silly) examples, kids will learn to remember everything they need to know about:

  • The Earth-including fun facts about geography, geology, and the weather- and the sky -revolving around planets, stars, atmosphere, and so on
  • Reading and writing-covering everything from the smallest punctuation mark to the prickliest words to spell to the trickiest grammar to the grandest figure of speech
  • The mysteries of history-from Way Before You Were Born (ancient history) to the most recent American history facts every kid needs to memorize
  • Math and music-a surprising, but logical combination that examines cool ways to remember numbers, times tables, calculations, and musical notations

Kids will like learning fun ways to remember stuff and will love getting the good grades that follow.

Are your kids learning how to recite the planets in order? Do they need to learn the world’s longest rivers? Are they writing a paper and need to know whether it’s accept or except?What? You can’t remember? Grab this useful guide to help you – and your kids – easily learn all many things to get them through school! Hott Review: Getting my children through school is much more difficult than getting myself through school was. Why is that? Do I really need to know the planets in order from largest to smallest? Is it necessary to remember the hierarchy of species? Apparently. Well, this handy guide has gotten me out of more than one jam because although, yes, I know how to use a preposition but explaining as my child is frustrated with his homework is a completely different thing.
